As we gear up for fall and the busyness it can bring, it's important to take stock of our
own needs and ensure that they're being met. As always, we're delighted to help out--this
month, we're featuring three businesses that remain focused on serving clients.
A partnership between the Fauquier County Department of Economic Development and
George Mason University, the
Mason Enterprise Center (MEC) provides numerous
services for start-up and existing businesses located in Fauquier County.
Based in Old Town Warrenton, MEC-Fauquier is open to any county resident and has
helped more than 300 businesses since it opened in 2014. Its many amenities include 12
private offi ces, conference rooms, free high-speed internet access, mail delivery, and more,
and it provides a host of services--many at no charge.
In addition to business counseling/coaching and Veterans Employment Services, MEC
hosts various regular seminars. A recent Procurement Technical Assistance Program

service employee in what was then referred to as the call center--now the customer care
center. For the past 15 years, Andrea has managed a team of four customer service
representatives, who are housed on the second fl oor of the View Tree branch in Warrenton.

While some dance companies focus on competition,
Excell Dance Studio was founded on
the premise of allowing people to enjoy dancing and share their talents through community
performance. Co-founder Kim Bridges an accomplished dancer herself, had a young
daughter when the studio opened in 2008, and she wanted her to feel welcome there.
Many Excell dancers come back year after year because of the family-friendly atmosphere,
as well as the variety of classes and excellent instruction of course! They are committed
to a fun and educational dance environment that provides physical exercise while boosting
self-esteem and fostering freedom of expression.
Kim notes that being in the family-friendly Fauquier community for the past decade has been
ideal because it echoes Excell's mission and goals. To learn more, call
